Our Score
Placing less emphasis on kung fu action (although it does feature an amazing fight involving a stepladder) and more on spectacular stunts, this Jackie Chan comedy thriller is a Bondesque romp shot on location all over the globe. The idiotic plot has Chan playing a Hong Kong cop who is hired by both the CIA and Russian intelligence to recover a stolen nuclear warhead. The chase to get the weapon and capture a rogue CIA agent winds up in Melbourne where Chan is framed for murder and adds the police to his list of adversaries. As ever, the storyline is a thin excuse to string together a series of breathtaking action sequences.


A Hong Kong cop delves into the murky world of international arms theft to track down a missing nuclear warhead - but the bad guys try to get him out of the way by framing him for murder. Martial arts adventure, starring Jackie Chan, Jackson Lou, Annie Wu, Bill Tung and Jouri Petrov. In Mandarin, Cantonese, English, Russian and Ukrainian.
